Underwater cables

Jen Chen | June 10, 2022

We at igus have specialised in cables for moving applications. Our chainflex cables are therefore only suitable for applications with low or periodic water influence and not for continuous use deep under water.
The reason for this, is that we must ensure the materials’ abrasion resistance, and we cannot do this with rubber-like outer jackets.

Who likes to have greasy fingers?

Kevin Huang | June 9, 2022

The discrepancy between urgently needed grease and oil and a hygienic, clean environment can be solved with linear plain bearings made of high-performance plastics. Solid lubricants, which are already embedded in the plastic during processing, eliminate the need for additional external lubrication. According to some manufacturers (incl. igus®), this external lubrication is expressly not desired.

How important is quiet in linear guides?

Kevin Huang | June 9, 2022

Linear guide systems, on the other hand, especially if they are based on technical high-performance plastics, slide – as their name suggests – over a running surface and produce only the slightest vibrations, which are at the same time dampened again by the plastic. This does not result in the same precision and stiffness, but a very pleasant smoothness. 45db are rarely exceeded.

Seat height adjustment – permanently quiet thanks to innovative plain bearing designs

Ethen Liang | June 7, 2022

The innovative assembly concepts of igus plain bearings are particularly popular for hinge connections in, amongst other things the seat height adjustment. The igus clip bearings are easy to handle and increase efficiency. The flange processes and recalibration steps common to metallic plain bearings are eliminated. Further advantages are the weight (up to 5x lighter) and parts price reduction (up to 40%) compared to the metal version.

Can fibre optic cable be the solution for small bend radii?

Jen Chen | May 13, 2022

Industry 4.0 has now found its way into very many applications. Data is collected at a wide variety of points and must be conveyed to the control system. Used here among other things are our chainflex cables. But when is fibre optic cable the right solution? And can fibre optic cable be used with small bend radii? We would like to take a closer look at that today.
